In this video, we’re gonna talk about the common mistakes when selecting your future software development outsourcing vendor when it comes to their backgrounds – the backgrounds of vendors and their founders and top executives.
One common mistake is when no one checks a vendor’s background. You are risking running into a vendor that has a bad history of relationships with their clients.
1. Research the vendor company.
- Identify any past issues
- Take issues to vendor
- Address them directly
2. Research the founder and executives
- Critical for smaller vendors
- Experience “Working in the trenches”
- Better culture
- Better processes
- Better quality
The point here is that people who know their industry and how the process of software development works, they will be able to instill a better culture, and they will be able to set up better processes.
Simple advice – just Google them. Just make sure it’s directly related to software development.
